We here at Freeway Editions recently received an email about an upcoming photo show here in Los Angeles. We were so stoked on the show we decided to share it with everyone! Subliminal Projects is a gallery space promoting diverse forms of art. Originally created by Shepard Fairey and Blaize Blouin in 1995 the gallery space has grown to be a destination for art lovers. The group helped introduce the subculture of skateboarding to the art world and since then the space has hosted exhibitions for all types of artistic mediums including but not limited to graphic art, illustration, photography and multi-media. The gallery is located in Echo Park, Los Angeles.
About the show: "SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS is pleased to present SURFACE, an exhibition featuring portraits of street artists taken by Danish photographer Søren Solkær. The images are part of a larger book project that began in 2012 and continued into 2015. For three years, Solkær traveled internationally, photographing street artists in their element and showcasing them alongside their art in public spaces. The project culminated in a publication that ultimately serves as a portrait anthology of many significant street artists in the contemporary art scene, as well as the genre’s pioneering icons."
Solkær has been a household name amount street artists for years, documenting the growth of the "underground" culture of fringe artists and now with the growing popularity and recognition of the art form the artist has created the chronicle of an art movement. The show opens this Saturday, April 25th. You don't want to miss it!
